Описание: Headless horsemen, ugly witches, devils, and demons -- these frightful Halloween symbols have captured the imagination of young and old alike for generations. In the early decades of this century, though, not all images associated with this night of goblins and ghouls displayed sinister qualities -- as revealed in these delightfully lighthearted cards issued between 1900 and 1930. Bringing a fairy-tale quality to the holiday, these vintage cards (many with charming rhymes) recall the romantic nature of long-ago Halloweens with festive scenes of kids and cats, witches and bats, jack-o'-lanterns, fortune-telling, pranks, and white-sheeted ghosts. Exhibiting the meticulous detail so highly prized among today's collectors, the 24 full-color cards in this captivating collection include now-rare illustrations by two popular artists of the period: Ellen Clapsaddle (1865-1934) and Frances Brundage (1854-1937), whose rosy-cheeked and startled youngsters became their trademarks. Perfect for sharing warm thoughts of friendship during a magical night, these easily detachable cards are sure to please youngsters of all ages.

With this excellent guide, anyone who can sew can create an exceptionally charming hand-crafted antique-style doll. Needlework authority Claire Bryant provides clear instructions and full-size patterns for making a sturdy, attractive cloth doll with a painted face and a closetful of clothes to dress her in: robe and nightgown, cape, suit, dresses, skirt and blouse, pinafore, wedding dress, and more. The actual number of costumes is even greater because you can mix and match outfits to create dozens of charming ensembles. While the doll itself is totally sewn, you paint the face on muslin to achieve an antique look. Over 30 how-to diagrams make each step easy, and you'll find various versions of the complete doll shown in black-and-white inside the book and in color on the covers. Also featured are instructions for making a little "dolly" for the doll with its own dress. Needleworkers, doll lovers, and admirers of hand-crafted items will find this doll a pleasure to make, give, or receive.
